R2b: COMARCA DE LA VERA ROUTES. MONASTERIO CARLOS V
On road, there are as many routes as each of us wishes to create. They are not signposted, therefore you should bring with you a GPS device with the track (which can be downloaded down here), a map or a really clear idea about the points you should be targeting. We propuse routes that end and start from Candeleda and that go throught the most popular ports in this area.
Candeleda is located only 10 km away from Extremadura, to be precise from the region of La Vera. There are a lot of routes that can be taken in order to visit de region. We propose several options.
Routes: Candeleda – Madrigal de la Vera – Villanueva – Valverde – Losar – Jarandilla – Aldeanueva – Cuacos de Yuste – Monasterio de Carlos V and the return will be trough the same route we went.
It is the same route as the option A, but we will not reach Jaraíz de la Vera and neither will reach El Piornal. We will get to Caucos de Yuste and from there we will go up to the Monasterio, following a 1,9 km climb with 118 km of positive slope and of an average gradient of 6,1 %. The return will be trough the same route we went.
-Km: 107 km.
-Slope: 1.450 m.
